OAKWOOD MISSION 

Oakwood College, a historically black, primarily liberal arts four-year co- 
educational Seventh-day Adventist institution, founded in 1896, has as its 
fundamental purpose, quality Christian education. Its mission embodies access 
to educational opportunity, academic excellence, and spiritual development for 
its students who come from diverse geographical, cultural, educational, and 
socioeconomic backgrounds. In addition to its emphasis on the liberal arts, the 
college provides biblical, professional, pre-professional, vocational, and 
continuing education studies. Some of these studies emanate from a limited 
number of institutional cooperative programs. Its programs and activities are 
unequivocally Christian in character, designed to integrate faith and learning, 
encourage a vibrant spiritual experience, prepare individuals for service to God 
and humanity, and provide an atmosphere for appreciation for oneself and 
affirmation of cultural diversity.

OAKWOOD COLLEGE 

1993-1995 
Our Ninety-eighth and Ninety-nineth Years 



Oakwood College offers employment without regard to race, color, sex, 
origin, age, marital status, or presence of a non-job-related medical condition 
or handicap. In conformity with Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1 972, 
and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1 973, the Vice President for Planning 
and Development has been designated as the responsible employee to coordi- 
nate efforts to carry out responsibilities and make investigations of contentions 
relating to non-discrimination. 

The college reserves constitutional and statutory rights as a religious 
institution and employer to give preference to Seventh-day Adventists in admis- 
sions and employment. The college believes that Title IX regulations are subject 
to constitutional guarantees against unreasonable entanglement with or infringe- 
ments on the religious teachings and practices of the Seventh-Day Adventist 
church. The college expects students and employees to uphold biblical principles 
of morality and deportment as interpreted by the Seventh-Day Adventist church. 
The college claims exemptions from the provisions of Title IX set forth in CFR 
Sections 86.21 , 86.31 , 86.40, and 86.57(b) insofar as they conflict with church 
teachings and practices of morality, deportment, and appearance. 

The institution reserves the right to revise its policies within a school year. 
Such changes take effect immediately, provided they have been written or 
publicly announced.

Admission Standards 

General Information 

Oakwood College welcomes applicants regardless of race, color, nation- 
ality, ethnicity, sex, or physical challenges. Admission is a privilege and not 
aright. The college, however, reserves the right to deny admission to any student 
who, in the judgment of the Office of Student Services or the Office of Enrollment 
Management, may not benefit from the total program of the college, or whose 
presence or conduct may be detrimental to the program. 

Inasmuch as Oakwood College is sponsored and financed primarily by the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church, the majority of its students are members of that 
church. However, no particular religious commitment is required for admission. 
Students who meet the academic and character requirements of the college and 
who express willingness to cooperate with college policies and to adjust to and 
be comfortable within its religious, social, and cultural atmosphere, may be 
admitted subject to available space. 

Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a specific 
department or program. 



Application for Admission 

Admissions policies at Oakwood College are established by the Administra- 
tive Council upon the recommendation of the Admissions Committee or faculty. 
The Director of Enrollment Management has been delegated to carry out these 
policies. The mission of Oakwood College is to "provide access to opportunity," 
therefore, Oakwood receives students from foreign countries as well as from all

Please note the following immigration regulations: 

Non-immigrant students applying for admission to the United States for the 
first time after being issued an F-1 student's visa, will not be admitted unless they 
intend to attend the school specified in that visa. Therefore, if before they depart 
for the United States, students decide to attend another school, they should 
communicate with the issuing American consular office for the purpose of having 
the other school specified in the visa. Any other non-immigrant students will not 
be admitted to the United States unless they intend to attend the school specified 
in the Form 1-20 or Form 1-94 which they present to the immigration officer at the 
port of entry. 

Non-immigrant students who do not register at the school specified in their 
temporary entry permit (Form 1-94), or whose school attendance is terminated, or 
who takes less than a full course of study, or who accepts unauthorized 
employment, thereby fails to maintain their status and must depart from the 
United States immediately. 



13 



Admission of Veterans 

Oakwood College is approved as an institution qualified to offer education to 
veterans under the provisions of The Veterans Readjustment Act of 1966. 
Veterans who have completed high school or passed the GED are admitted under 
regular admissions standards for freshmen. Veterans transferring must meet the 
requirements for transfer students. 

Once enrolled, the veteran must present the Certificate of Eligibility for 
Educational Benefits to the Coordinator of Veterans Affairs in the Records Office

service and educational credit earned. Credit will be determined based on the 
recommendations in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in 
the Armed Services. 



Advanced Placement Program 

Credit toward graduation may be granted to an entering freshman who has 
passed one or more Advanced Placement (AP) examinations with a score of 3, 
4, or 5. The student is responsible for having the official test scores sent to the 
Office of Enrollment Management. A score of 3 will exempt the student from the 
first applicable course. A score of 4 or 5 will exempt the student from additional 
courses upon the recommendation of the department. 



Verification of Enrollment 

Students who require enrollment verification for student loan deferment 
purposes must bring the form, or a written request, to the Office of Enrollment 
Management. When a student is enrolled full-time, freshmen and senior 
verification will be for one year, juniors for two years, sophomores for three years. 



Transfer Students/Credits 

Students wishing to transfer to Oakwood College from another college or 
university must follow the same application procedure as other students. The 
college from which the student is transferring should forward to the Records 
Office an official transcript and a statement of honorable dismissal. Transfer 
credits may be applied toward the requirements for a degree when the student

of higher learning while registered at Oakwood College without prior approval 
from the Records Office. Otherwise, the credit will not be accepted.

Financial Aid 

Students applying for the Federal Student Financial Assistance programs 
(known as Title IV) must comply with the following procedures in a timely manner. 
A student's noncompliance may result in the loss of potential benefits and will 
result in a protracted and negative institutional registration experience, if the 
student needs the federal resources to assist in their educational expenses. 

The following procedures/priority dates are strongly advised: 

1 . Complete the annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 
by March 15 and mail it to Federal Student Aid Programs. 

2. Submit a signed copy of his/her base year Federal Income Tax Return 
to the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) . Base year is the year that precedes 
the academic year that aid is being applied for. For example, applicants 
for the 1 993-94 academic year would submit their 1 992 Federal Income 
Tax Return. If the student did not file a tax return, then he/she would 
complete the appropriate section of the OC Verification Worksheet and 
submit copies of their W-2's. 

3. Legal or biological parents of dependent students must submit a signed 
copy of their complete base year Federal Income Tax Return(s) to the 
OFA. If the parent(s) did not and will not file a base year tax return, then 
they must complete the appropriate section of the OC Verification 
Worksheet and submit copies of their W-2's. 

4. The Oakwood College Verification Worksheet must be completed by 
dependent students and their parent(s). Independent students/spouses 
must complete the worksheet for independent students. Each section 
must be completed and signed by the designated family members and 
returned to the OFA. 

5. Students who have attended other colleges, proprietary, technical, and/ 
or community colleges must request a Financial Aid Transcript Request 
Form for this procedure. Even if you did not receive aid at the other 
institution, you are still required to request the transcript. 

6. The Student Aid Report (SAR) is generated and mailed to the applicant 
and family members. Eligible students for the Pell Grant will have three 
parts and ineligible students will have two. Once you receive your SAR's, 



20 



check it for accuracy of information. These documents must be returned 
to the OFA before the student's award package can be determined. 

7. The Student's Use Box, which is located on the back of Part I of the SAR, 
must be completed by the applicant. This box has a Statement of 
Registration Status, Statement of Educational Purpose/Certification, 
Statement on Refunds and Default, Anti-Drug Act Certification compo- 
nents, and a signature line. Students must complete every component 
and sign the document. 

8. Students who are twenty four years old must submit a copy of one of the 
following forms of identification: a valid driver's license, a birth certifi- 
cate, or a current and valid OC student I.D. that has the birth date. 

9. Eligible non-citizens applying for financial aid will have their Immigration 
and Naturalization Service (INS) status checked by the Federal Depart- 
ment of Education and INS and a verifying statement will be indicated on 
the SAR. If the SAR statement indicates that the student is properly 
registered with INS, it will not be necessary to submit a copy of the Alien 
Registration Card; othenA^ise, send a copy of both sides of the card. 

10. The student, spouse, or parent must submit official documents that 
substantiate your annual amounts of untaxed income for the base year. 
Untaxed income may include Social Security Benefits, AFDC/ADC, 
Pension Benefits, Workman's Compensation. If the documentation is 
not an official/regulatory form with appropriate signatures, it will not be 
accepted by the OFA. 

1 1 . Veterans who receive Gl benefit must submit copies of their discharge 
documents and of their annual benefits. 

1 2. Students applying for a Federal Stafford Loan, SLS (Supplemental Loan 
For Students), or the PLUS (Parents Loan for Undergraduate Students) 
must submit a signed loan application to the OFA . 

1 3. All required documents for file completion should be postmarked by June 
25 to use federal dollars (grants and loans) for registration in the fall 
quarter. 

1 4. After the award letter and the college work-study contract (if the applicant 
received it), have been signed by the student they must be returned to 
the office before the funds can be applied to the student's account. 



Financial Aid Policies 
Satisfactory Academic Progress 

The concept of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) goes beyond good 
standing to mean evidence of positive movement toward the student's degree. 
Participating institutions in the Title IV programs are required to establish 
standards of SAP for students receiving assistance through the following pro- 
grams: Federal CWS, Federal Pell Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal SEOG, 
Federal SLS/PLUS Loans, Federal Stafford Loan, and SSIG Programs. 

The SAP policy has two components, qualitative and quantitative. In the 
qualitative component, recipients of the federal student financial programs must 



21 



maintain the indicated cumulative GPA for the indicated years of enrollment: first 
year1.70GPA, second year 2.00 GPA, third year2. 00 GPA, and fourth year 2.00 
GPA. 

Payment of all federal and state resources will be based upon the student's 
compliance with the appropriate unadjusted cumulative GPA as indicated in the 
qualitative component of the SAP policy. Every recipient's GPA status will be 
reviewed each year during the financial aid file verification process. Students with 
ineligible GPA's forfeit all federal and state resources until the unadjusted 
cumulative GPA is at the appropriate level. Lost federal/state resources are not 
retroactive after the student regains eligibility in the subsequent quarter(s). 

In the quantitative component students enrolled full-time must complete their 
undergraduate degree in five years or fifteen quarters. During this period, the 
student must successfully pass the number of hours indicated below with the 
unadjusted cumulative GPA as stated in the qualitative component.

Reinstatement 

Students who lose financial aid eligibility because of failure to maintain 
satisfactory progress toward a degree may reapply for financial aid after clearing 
the deficiency; no aid will be retroactively granted. 



22 



Transfer Students Eligibility for Aid 

Transfer students are eligible for federal aid during their first quarter of 
attendance at the college, regardless of their GPA from transfer hours. Following 
the initial term, they must meet the institutional SAP policy, which is based upon 
the hours and courses completed at the institution. 

Student Withdrawals 

Students may withdraw from the college once during an award year without 
forfeiting their financial aid for the subsequent quarter, provided the withdrawal 
date is in harmony with the refund policy. If they withdraw a second time, they 
forfeit their financial aid eligibility for the subsequent quarter. Eligibility reinstate- 
ment will require the student to successfully complete the next enrollment period 
(quarter) using their own resources. 

Repeated Course Work 

Repeated course work will not be considered in meeting the enrollment 
status requirements for receiving federal funds. For example, if a student 
registers for 1 2 hours and 4 hours are repeated courses, then the student would 
only receive a Pell and SEOG grant for half-time enrollment. The student would 
be listed as taking 8 hours, since the 4 hour course is a repeat. 

Student Appeals Process to the Financial Aid Committee 

The appeals process can only be utilized for the issues pertaining to the 
Withdrawal and Coordination of Institutional Sources of Student Aid policies. 
Students must submit their appeals request on the Appeals Form to the OFA. The 
student will be notified by the OFA of the time, location, and date of the committee 
meeting. 



23 



student Life and Services 



Religious Life 

At Oakwood, religion is the main foundation. The College Church service, 
the Sabbath School, the Adventist Youth Society (A.Y.S.), the Ministerial Forum, 
the student literature evangelism program, the residence hall worship hours, and 
the many prayer bands afford the students excellent opportunities for the 
development of character, self-expression, leadership, and initiative. 



Convocations, the Arts and Lecture Series 

During the school year distinguished guest speakers address the student 
body at the chapel hour as well as conduct religious emphasis weeks. The Arts 
and Lecture Series brings to the campus each year several outstanding lecturers 
and artists. In addition to this, many other programs of equal eminence are 
sponsored by the college. 



Social Activities 

A wholesome program of social activities is planned by the Director of 
Student Activities in consultation with the United Student Movement. Social 
programs are sponsored during the year by clubs, classes, and organizations. 
The students experience social and cultural life by visiting faculty and staff 
members' homes. 



Extracurricular Activities Participation 

In order to ensure satisfactory scholarship, the extent to which students may 
participate in extracurricular activities is subject to regulation. In addition to any 
other regulations, the minimum cumulative GPA must be 2.00 for membership 
and 2.50 to hold office. 

The recreational activities of the college are designed to serve the wide 
variety of leisure-time interests of the students. 



Intramural Sports 

The college sponsors a program of intramural sports in connection with the 
physical education activities. 



24 



Health Service 

The College Health Service is designed to meet the medical needs of 
students. Nurses are on active duty during the day and evening and on call for 
emergencies at night. The College Physician holds regular clinic hours in the 
Health Office four days a week and is available on call. In case of serious illness 
or accident, excellent complete hospital care is readily available. Parents or 
guardians of students who are seriously ill will be notified immediately. 



Student Association 

The United Student Movement (USM) of Oakwood College is the major 
student organization of the college. This organization seeks to promote a more 
perfect relationship among all sectors of the college community; to enhance the 
religious, academic, cultural, and social programs of the college; and to emphati- 
cally support the aims and objectives of Oakwood College. Each matriculated, 
regular student of Oakwood College is a member of the United Student Move- 
ment. The United Student Movement finances its own program through the 
payment of individual membership dues. With the help and approval of faculty 
sponsors, the United Student Movement (USM) carries out such programs along 
with the Department of Student Activities.

Governing Standards 

It is the purpose of the college to develop strong men and women with high 
standards of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian leader- 
ship. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon the 
principle that character building is the highest object of education and that a good 
name, standing for integrity, honor, and godliness, is the objective of the student 
for himself and of the college for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to provide 
a Christian environment in which students may prepare themselves for service at 
home and in other lands. In order to maintain this environment certain general 
rules of conduct apply. 



Student Handbook 

In every community there are laws. It is the responsibility of every student 
to secure from the Office of Student Services and to read the rules and regulations 
governing student life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Famil- 
iarity with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book will make life 
at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his 
scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude toward 
the community in which he lives. As a citizen of the college community the student 
must realize that he has been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no 
right to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules of the college 
or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the standards maintained by the 
college may be asked to withdraw. 



Student Citizenship 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering any 
department of the college is subject to its supervision and jurisdiction from the 
time of arrival in Huntsville until his connection is terminated by graduation or by 
any officially approved withdrawal. The record of each student is reviewed 
periodically, and his continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and 
general conduct, as well as his scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the college are infractions which are 
considered suspendable and may be cause for dismissal or serious disciplinary 
action for the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices 
would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College the first infraction may result 
in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence is 
detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 



26 



Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the campus 
and may be subjected to charges of trespassing should he return without 
permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence 

Permission for an ordinary leave of absence from the campus may be 
obtained from the appropriate Residence Dean. Approval must also be obtained 
from the work superintendent. When a leave of absence involves absence from 
a class, permission must be obtained from the Vice President for Academic 
Affairs. For travelling, written permission from the parent or guardian must be on 
file for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to this rule are 
granted only to students who are both of legal age and self-supporting. In every 
case, working students must secure the approval of their work superintendent 
before presenting their requests to their respective deans. 

Attendance at Religious Services 

Oakwood College is emphatically a Christian college. Attendance at evening 
worships, chapel, Friday evening vespers. Sabbath School, and Sabbath morn- 
ing church service is a basic requirement. 

Assembly Absences 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to attend assembly. 
A student is allowed two unexcused absences from Assembly without penalty 
each quarter. A $10.00 charge will be made for each unexcused absence in 
excess of two. Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in writing 
to the Director of Student Services before the very next Assembly. Failure to do 
this will automatically result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case of unavoid- 
able work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a permanent excuse for a 
quarter, a written request, signed by the work supervisor, must be submitted to 
the Office of Student Services within twenty -one days of the beginning of each 
quarter. 

Use of Vehicles 

Since the ownership and the use of an automobile frequently militate against 
success in college, students are not encouraged to bring automobiles with them 
to the college unless absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring 
automobiles to the college, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles owned by 
other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the community, who own 
or operate any type of motor vehicle (e.g. car, motorcycle, scooter), must register 
it with the Office of Security at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 
twenty-four hours of his arrival should he arrive after registration has been 
concluded or within twenty-four hours of its procurement within any quarter of the 
school year. 

27 



Owners must have a valid operator's license and must show proof of liability 
insurance (including medical coverage) at the time of registration and whenever 
requested by traffic enforcement personnel. 

Residence Halls 

Students living in college residence halls may not register for fewer than 9 
quarter hours without permission of the Office of Student Services. 

All unmarried students are required to live in one of the College residence 
halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless they live with parents or with 
other close relatives in the area. 

When campus housing is overcrowded students age twenty-two and over 
may apply to the Housing Committee for permission to live in the community. 
Under special circumstances, students under age twenty-two also may apply to 
the Housing Committee for permission to live off-campus in an officially approved 
home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a quarter. Failure 
to secure official approval to reside in the community or to withdraw from a college 
residence hall when directed to do so will invalidate the registration of a student. 
Students who have received approval for off campus living may be called into the 
college residence halls at any time the administration deems necessary for 
reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space in the residence halls. 

Each residence hall is under the direction of a Residence Dean who has 
general supervision of the well being of the students under their charge. 

Apartments 

The college owns thirty units of one-and two-bedroom apartments which are 
available for married students. These apartments rent for reasonable amounts. 
There are also approved apartments in the community, furnished and unfur- 
nished, in which married students may live. For information write the Assistant 
Vice President for Finance. 



Student Labor 

Employment Regulations 

Regulations require that all employees hired present original documents that 
establish both their identity and eligibility to work. All students wishing to work on 
the Oakwood College campus will be required to present documents before they 
will be authorized to begin work.

29 



Services 

Services include testing (diagnostic assessment, national placement ex- 
aminations, CLEP), counseling (personal, career, pre-marital, marriage and 
family), and developmental guidance (career evaluation, human relations, lead- 
ership training, and family life education). 

Goals and Philosophy 

The Center's emphasis is on personal development. Its primary goal is to 
help students become more effective in handling and resolving problem situa- 
tions before they become critical by teaching them what to expect and how to 
behave adoptively under most circumstances. It is a preventive philosophy which 
is believed to be most suitable to the needs, beliefs, and practices of Seventh-day 
Adventists and other fundamentally conservative Christians. 

The goal for its consulting activities is to facilitate the continuing development 
and maintenance of an optimal collegiate environment for learning and individual 
growth. 

Confidentiality 

Personal information regarding specific individuals is held in strictest confi- 
dence and may not be released without the written consent of the persons 
involved. 

Cost 

Professional services to students are given without charge. There are, 
however, charges associated with the computer scoring and analysis of diagnos- 
tic tests and the administration of the national placement examinations and 
CLEP.

Academic Policies 



Curriculum 



The curriculum at Oakwood College reflects very distinctly the educational 
philosophy, purposes, and needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. From 
its earliest history. Seventh-day Adventist education has been multipurpose-a 
combination of theory and practice. Strong emphasis has been given to providing 
students with a college program that would grant them job entry and provide 
opportunities for the development of a personal code of moral and social values 
for Christian living in contemporary society. It is for this reason that the curricular 
offerings at Oakwood College have a very pragmatic character. This is true in the 
humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Because of the needs of the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as society at large, Oakwood College has 
developed some disciplines that are almost exclusively professional. However, 
regardless of the amount of vocational emphasis, all baccalaureate and associ- 
ate degree programs have been so organized that there is a common core of 
general education studies required of all students. 

The mission of the college strongly emphasizes health, the importance of 
service to the world, the integration of spiritual instruction and understanding as 
a part of intellectual growth, and the facilitation of cultural and personal 
affirmation. The general education core curriculum includes courses in the 
philosophy of Christian education, basic computer literacy, health and recrea- 
tion, the humanities, foreign languages, mathematics, natural sciences, religion 
and theology, and the social sciences. Baccalaureate and associate degree 
programs likewise are designed to harmonize with the key elements of the 
college's mission. 

The college has fourteen academic departments offering about forty majors 
and thirty minors. The following degrees are available: Associate of Arts, 
Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music 
Performance, and Bachelor of Social Work.

The Academic Year 

The academic or college year usually starts in late August and ends in July. 
The academic year consists of three quarters, each of which covers a period of 
approximately ten weeks and a summer session of at least six weeks. Provision 
may be made for mini sessions during the summer and winter breaks. 



Schedule of Classes 

Each year the college publishes a schedule of classes which lists the courses 
offered, the time of meetings, the rooms, and the instructors. When reference 
is made to courses offered in even- or odd-numbered years, it is intended to 
indicate the year of graduation ending in June. The college reserves the right to 
cancel any course offered for which there are less than six students, and to set 
limits on class size when necessary. 



Course Numbers and Symbols 

Courses of instruction are classified as remedial, lower division, and upper 
division. Courses numbered 090 through 099 are courses which may be required 
of certain students. Lower division courses are numbered 100 through 299; 
upper division courses are numbered 300 through 499. Students should take 
each level in turn to avoid scheduling problems. Code to course symbols are:

Credit 



The unit of credit is the quarter hour. A quarter hour is the amount of credit 
earned for the satisfactory completion of one hour a week lecture or recitation or 
at least two hours a week laboratory practice throughout one quarter. 



34 



Hyphenated courses ( e.g. 1 01 -1 02) indicate that the sequence of courses should 
be taken in order. Commas separating courses (e.g. 101,1 02) indicate that the 
courses may be taken out of sequence. The symbol 4-4 indicates that the course 
carries four quarter hours of credit each quarter for two quarters, which, being 
hyphenated, should be taken in sequence. The symbol 4,4 indicates that the 
course may be taken out of sequence. 



Study Load 

Class load is governed by classification and previous academic performance 
as follows: 



Classification 


Minimum Cum. GPA 


Maximum Load 


Academic Probation 


below 2.00 


13 hours 


All regular students 


2.00 


17 hours 


Sophomores and Juniors 


3.00 


18 hours 


Seniors 


3.00 


20 hours 



The maximum class load for any situation includes incompletes and 
courses by cooperative arrangement (neighboring colleges). 

1 2 credit hours is considered full-time and will satisfy the following authori- 



ties: 



1. Immigration and Naturalization Service 

2. Selective Service 

3. Veterans Administration 

4. Health, Education, and Welfare 

5. U.S. Department of Labor 



Classification of Students 

New students are classified upon acceptance by the Office of Enrollment 
Management. Returning student's classification for the year is determined by the 
amount of credit he has earned at the beginning of the college year. A student 
who may meet the hour requirement, but whose cumulative grade point average 
is below 2.00 will be listed in the next lower class until his cumulative grade point 
average is raised to 2.00 or better. Student classes are organized early in the fall 
quarter according to the following levels of academic achievement (remedial 
courses are not included).

Special Students 

Special students accepted to the college fall under the following catego- 
ries: 

1 . Post Baccalaureate-refers to a student with a bachelor's degree who 
is enrolled for part-time or full-time work. 

2. Unclassified-applies to any student who meets admission standards 
(but who has no present plans to pursue a degree) or to a student whose 
classification cannot be determined at the time of admission. 

3. Non-Degree-refers to a non-traditional student who desires to take a 
course or courses for personal development. Credit hours are limited 
to four per quarter. 

4. Transient Admission-applies to a student submitting evidence that he 
or she is in good and regular standing in an accredited college or 
university but who desires temporary admission to Oakwood College for 
one quarter, the grades and credits of which will be transferred to his or 
her original institution. 

5. Visiting Student- Refer to the Cooperative Programs section in this 
bulletin for details. 



Class Standing 

Freshmen are limited to lower division courses except by permission of the 
head of the department in which the course is being taught. The lower division 
courses are open to freshmen and sophomores and should be completed before 
the student progresses to the junior and senior years. 

A student entering his third year of college work who lacks any of the 
prescribed courses of the lower division, which are preliminary to upper division 
work for a degree, must first register for such prescribed courses of the lower 
division and then complete his program from the upper division. 

Beginning freshmen on academic probation will not be allowed to advance 
to regular academic standing until all academic deficiencies have been removed 
and at least 12 hours of other college credit have been earned with a minimum 
GPA of 2.00. 

Freshmen will not be allowed to advance to sophomore status until they have 
passed the Freshman Composition sequence, and have a GPA of at least 1 .70. 
Sophomores will not be permitted to advance to junior status, or take any upper 
division courses, until they have a GPA of at least 2.00. Juniors will not be 
advanced to senior status, or permitted to submit an approved final year schedule 
for graduation, until they have passed the English Proficiency Test or EN 250, 
and have a GPA of at least 2.00. 



Permanent Student Records 

The student's permanent academic record is the transcript. The transcript 
contains biographical, geographical, and academic information regarding courses 



36 



taken and grades earned. This information is taken from application for accep- 
tance forms, registration forms, teachers' grade sheets, drop/add, and teachers' 
change of grade forms. 



Retention and Disposal of Student Records 

The retention and disposal of student records is in accordance with the 
recommendations of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and 
Admissions Officers as published in the guide entitled. Retention of Records: A 
Guide for Retention and Disposal of Student Records. 



Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 

Oakwood College complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy 
Act of 1974. A student's record is regarded as confidential and release of this 
information is regulated by the act. Students have the right to inspect their records 
at any time. Parents of students termed "dependent" for income tax purposes are 
entitled to receive information relating to the students' educational records. A 
copy of the Act is on file in the Records Office. 



Registration 

Registration includes counseling, selection of courses, and payment of fees. 
Students are required to register on the designated registration dates as an- 
nounced in the bulletin. Information on registration is available at the registration 
site. 

Students are not officially registered for a course until their "registration form" 
has been processed by the Records Office and all fees are paid. 



Late Registration 

Students failing to register during the scheduled registration periods are 
assessed a late registration fee of $35.00 and $5.00 for each additional day to a 
maximum of $60.00. Class periods missed because of late registration are 
counted as absences from the class. 

Students registering late may be required by the advisor and the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs to reduce their class load. Late registrants are 
required to make up course work already missed. 



Withdrawal From College Courses 

If students want to add or drop a class or change a section after having 
completed registration for credit or audit, they should follow these procedures: 



37 



I.Drop. Before the deadline (one week after mid-quarter) I) obtain form from 
the Record's Office, 2) secure proper signatures, 3) pay the appropriate fee, and 
4) return the form to the Records Office. Expect a W for the class if dropped 
before the deadline. Forgetting or failure to drop officially through processing a 
form will result in final grade of FA. 

2. Add. By the last day of late registration, follow the same steps (1-4) as 
listed above — under "Drop". A charge of $10.00 is made for each change of 
schedule until the last day for any tuition refund, except when the change is made 
necessary by the cancellation of a scheduled class or the change of class time 
which renders it impossible for students to maintain their original schedule. 

3. To discontinue a course of study, students must complete a terminal leave 
form one week before final examinations begins, which may be secured from the 
Office of Student Services. 



Examinations 

Pre-Examination Week 

Pre-examination week is the week that precedes the quarter's final exami- 
nations. During this week, no off-campus field trips, or extracurricular activities 
requiring students participation, may be scheduled without the permission of the 
Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

Final Examinations 

All students must take the final examination in each course at the time listed 
in the official time schedule. Exceptions may be made only by the Vice-President 
for Academic Affairs. Should the examination schedule require a student to 
complete four examinations in one day, arrangements may be made with the 
department chair to complete one of the examinations at another time. 

English Proficiency Examination 

Each student is required to take a proficiency test in English before the senior 
year. Upper division transfer students who have completed Freshman Compo- 
sition are required to take the English Proficiency Examination during the first 
quarter in which the test is offered. This test is administered as scheduled in the 
calendar once during the fall and winter quarters. Students who fail to pass the 
testtwice, are required to enroll and pass EN 250 English Fundamentals, in order 
to qualify for graduation. 

A fee often dollars ($1 0.00) is charged for this test. Note that the examination 
and EN 250 English Fundamentals are not offered during the spring quarter. 



38 



Exit Examination 

All seniors are required to pass a departmental exit examination in their major 
area of study prior to graduation. Exit examinations may be internal or external, 
i.e., written by the department or obtained from an external source such as the 
Graduate Record Examination. 



Special Examinations 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having competence or 
exposure in a certain area covered by a required course may meet an academic 
requirement by passing a test in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 
or the Proficiency Examination Program (PEP) 

Not more than 48 hours of the total credit hours required for graduation may 
be earned by these examinations, which are the only ones acceptable. 



Life Experience Policy 

Life Experience credit is granted upon the evaluation of accomplishments 
and competencies not ordinarily considered part of the traditional classroom 
experience. The program is geared towards the mature adult who has had a 
minimum of ten years' experience in a given area. Credit, however, is not 
applicable towards the first five years, and not until the student has completed 
a minimum of 1 6 quarter hours with a minimum GPA of 2.00 at Oakwood College. 

Any credit granted will be for the learning gained, and not just for experience 
itself. Therefore, it is the students' responsibility to prove to the satisfaction of 
the Academic Policies Committee that from their experience they have 
developed competencies that are equivalent to classroom learning, in order to 
qualify to sit for the challenge examinations. 

Procedures: 

1 . Describe learning experiences believed to translate into academic 
credit. 

2. Suggest what courses are applicable. 

3. Review document with academic advisor. 

4. Submit documentary evidence that may be used to verify the experi- 
ences identified (this would include testimonials from former employers 
and/or supervisors). 

5. Pass challenge examinations in areas for which credit is expected. 

Evaluation Formula: 

1 . For each year of full-time work approved for credit by examination-4 
hours. 

2. Not more than 25 percent of the 1 92 hours required for graduation shall 
be earned through life experience. 

39 



3. Not more than 25 percent of the requirements for the major may be met 
through life experience credit. 

Charge 

The charge for life experience credit by examination is $25.00 per credit hour. 

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

Oakwood College grants the appropriate credit for each subject exam 
passed in this program by the College Entrance Examination Board. The 
following statements summarize the program: 

1 . The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a student may apply 
toward graduation is 48 quarter hours. 

2. In each major the maximum number of CLEP subject examination credits 
a student may earn is determined by the major department. 

3. In the case of the general education requirements, the Academic Policies 
Committee will determine which courses can be taken by the CLEP and 
how much credit a student may earn from the basic general education 
requirements without overlapping in the subject area. 

4. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before credit can be 
granted. 

5. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course credit, but no 
letter grade shall be assigned or quality points considered. 

6. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may not repeat the 
course for which credit was given by examination for a grade. 

7. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before entering Oakwood 
College must have the approval of the Records Office before the test is 
taken. 

8. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are subject to review 
by the Records Office. 

9. A fee that will cover the cost of the examination and its administration will 
be charged each student desiring to take the CLEP examination at 
Oakwood College. 

The following table lists the CLEP subject and corresponding courses and 
minimum credits acceptable at Oakwood College:

Grading System 

The college grading system utilizes the four point scale. The grade point 
values are outlined below as follows: 

Grade Point 

Grade Per Hour 

A (superior) 4.0 

A- 3.7 

B+ 3.3 

B (above average) 3.0 

B- 2.7 

C+ 2.3 

(average) 2.0 

C- 1.7 

D+ 1.3 

D (below average) 1.0 

D- 0.7 

F (failure) 0.0 

FA (failure due to absences) 0.0 

AU (audit) 

DG (deferred grade) 

1 (Incomplete) 0.0 

NC (non-credit) 

P/U (pass/unsatisfactory) 

W (withdrew) 



41 



Grade Point Average 

The Grade Point Average (GPA) for the quarter is computed by totaling the 
honor points earned in all courses attempted and dividing by the total hours 
attempted (GPA = HP/HA). Credits for which grades of F, FA, and I are received 
are included in calculating the grade point average. The symbols AU, NC DG, W, 
and P/U are disregarded in computing the grade point average. 

The academic progress record allows for repeated courses without GPA 
penalty. However, the GPA used to determine the eligibility for financial aid 
includes all work attempted. 



Pass/Unsatisfactory Procedures 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass/unsatisfactory basis a student must 
be a sophomore, junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. No 
more than 1 6 hours may be taken on this basis. The pass/unsatisfactory system 
applies to elective courses only. A pass is equivalent to a C although some 
graduate and professional schools treat the P as a D. 

Approval for the P/U option should be obtained at the Records Office before 
the close of late registration. Registration changes in the process are final as of 
the last day to drop without academic penalty. 



Incomplete Work 

When, at the end of a quarter, students are behind in their classwork, the 
teacher does not automatically grant a grade of I for more time to do the 
requirements. If, however, because of interruptive illness or other unavoidable 
circumstances, students should request the privilege of receiving a grade of I to 
allow more time to fulfill class requirements. They must apply in time so that a 
final decision is made before the beginning of final examination week. The 
procedures to be followed are: 

1 . Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for Incomplete" at the 
Office of Academic Affairs. 

2. Attach a physician's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the appropriate signatures. 

4. Return the form to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, 
at least five working days before the beginning of final examinations. 

An I may be changed to a regular grade when the classwork is completed 
within the approved deadline. Such a deadline might range from a few days to 
several weeks, but no longer than the sixth week of the next quarter, even when 
the student is not registered the next quarter. The I automatically converts to an 
F if not removed within the prescribed time. Should more time because of further 
illness or unavoidable circumstances be needed to remove the incomplete, the 
student may, before the deadline expires, request in writing an extension of time 
from the Academic Policies Committee. 

42 



Grade Reports 

Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or guardians at 
the end of each quarter. 



Errors and Corrections 

Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for 
correctness as to the courses, credits, and grades recorded. Requests for 
corrections must be initiated within one month. 



Dean's List 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.50, who carry a minimum 
of 1 5 quarter hours with no grade below a B, and no incompletes, are eligible for 
membership on the dean's list. 



Honor Roll 

Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours and who maintain a grade point 
average of 3.00, or above, during a given quarter with no grade below a C shall 
be considered honor students for the quarter. 



Honors Convocation 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scholastic achieve- 
ment, loyalty to college standards, and exemplary citizenship, the college 
conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be eligible for participation the 
student must have a cumulative GPA of not less than 3.50 for a minimum of 24 
hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and a minimum 
of 33 hours earned at Oakwood College. 



Graduation with Distinction 

Students are graduated with honors under the following conditions: 
Honorable Mention. Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00. 
Cum Laude. Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25. 

Magna Cum Laude. Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50. 
Summa Cum Laude. Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.75. 



43 



Academic Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal 

All students whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.00 are placed on academic 
probation. This status requires all academic probationary students to take part 
in the academic improvement program conducted by the Center for Academic 
Advancement (CAA). Failure of all academic probation students to take part in 
this program may result in dismissal from the college. Students who fail to make 
acceptable academic progress in view of the established policies and procedures 
of the institution will be suspended. A first suspension because of poor academic 
performance will result in the student being ineligible for readmission or 
reacceptance consideration for a period of two quarters from the date of 
suspension. When suspended a second time, students become eligible for 
readmission or reacceptance after one calendar year from the suspension date, 
providing that during that time they have attended another accredited college for 
at least one quarter, carrying a minimum of 1 2 quarter hours with no grade lower 
than C. In both cases, to be so considered, the student must apply for 
readmission through the Records Office. 

Any student who, after six academic quarters or 96 quarter hours, has not

Monitoring Students Academic Progress (MSAP) 

The Committee on Monitoring Students Academic Progress (MSAP), which 
consists of a consortium of college administrators, departmental chairs, faculty, 
and staff, insures students' conformance and compliance to the academic 
policies of the institution. Qualitative and quantitative data of students such as 
GPA's, class repeats, class failures, remediation, withdrawals, incompletes, 
maximum time frames for academic work completion, etc. are all used to 
determine a student's chances of successful and timely benefiting from their 
major course of study at Oakwood College. 

At least twice a year, this committee meets to review the academic progress 
of students whose academic standing is in jeopardy. Recommendations are 
made to suspend, dismiss, retain, or warn based on the data presented. 

The committee considers a student's academic progress to be in a serious 
status when the first quarter's current GPA is 0.00, or after three quarters the 
cumulative GPA is less than 1 .50, or after six quarters or a total of 96 hours the 
cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. 



Remedial Courses 

Beginning freshmen entering Oakwood College on academic probation 
must pursue a prescribed course of remedial studies during their first year, which 
may include any of the following: EN 095, EN 099, MA 095, and PY 095. These 
remedial courses, which are in addition to the 1 92 hours needed for graduation, 
must each be passed with a minimum grade of C. If failed, they must be repeated 
the next quarter until passed. 



Center for Academic Advancement 

The mission of the Center for Academic Advancement (CAA) is to assist 
students to gain the skills necessary to do college-level work. The program, in 
collaboration with the Departments of Psychology, Mathematics and Computer 
Science, and English and Communications, offers Scholarship Skills, Basic 
Mathematics, Basic English, and Developmental Reading to select groups of 
students who need to develop scholarship skills. In addition to attending regular 
lecture classes, students must attend a laboratory once a week in Developmental 
Reading, Basic Mathematics, and Scholarship Skills. The laboratory component 
provides opportunity for individualized instruction consistent with student needs 
and desires. The laboratory setting affords students the opportunity to assess 
their deficiencies, work to correct them, and receive instant feedback. Laboratory 
work is considered for a significant percentage of each student's final grade. 
Upgraded tutorial services supplement the developmental laboratories through 
cooperative efforts of specialists and the tutor supervisor.

The Eva B. Dykes Library 

The Eva B. Dykes Library is a vital part of the academic program at Oakwood 
College. Designed to provide space for more than 200,000 volumes, it now 
contains over 109,317 volumes. New books are being acquired at the rate of 
approximately 2,000 a year. The library serves as a learning resource center and 
a reading , study, and materials center to support the educational objectives of the 
institution for faculty and students. In addition to the general book collection, there 
are special collections of black studies materials, archival materials, multimedia 
materials, children's books, and paperbacks. 

Also, there is a special museum exhibit room housed in the building which 
contains display materials related to Seventh-day Adventist Black history, Oak- 
wood College history, and artifacts donated by Mr. P. W. Ridgeway from his many 
world travels . 



Department Curriculum Laboratories 

Individual departments of the college may have centers or laboratories for 
the practical use of their students. For instance, the Mathematics Department has 
a mathematics/computer science laboratory, located in the Science Complex, 
Building B, designed as a center for the reinforcement of biology, chemistry, and 
physics. The Department of Music has a music laboratory, located in the Center 
for Academic Advancement, designed to help prospective music students 
overcome deficiencies. The Departments of Psychology and Social Work share 
a computer laboratory located in Green Hall. Other departments have seminar 
rooms and places where students may use computers or get special assistance. 



Freshman Studies 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instructional, 
and supportive services to first-year students. Its purpose is to increase their 
potential for academic success and personal adjustment to the demands of 
college life. Components of the program include: 

Orientation _ 

The week preceding registration for the fall quarter of each year is known as 
Freshman Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman status are 
expected to report as notified and, upon arrival, to participate in all of the 
scheduled activities of the week. These include a) orientation to the academic and 
residential requirements of the college and the resources that are available to 
assist all students in meeting them successfully; b) developmental guidance and 
instruction regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes that are essential for academic 
and personal success. 



46 



Diagnostic Assessment 

During Freshman Orientation Week, the American College Test (ACT) will 
be administered to new freshmen who have not already taken it or the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test (SAT). 

Results are used for I) placing students in appropriate courses of study, 2) 
fulfilling Alabama state requirements for entrance into special programs, and 3) 
assisting advisors and counselors in their work of helping students to plan their 
academic programs evaluate their academic progress, and set realistic personal 
and career goals. Accumulated data will help the college to determine what areas 
of its programs and services need strengthening and/or modification in order to 
effectively fulfill its commitment to the success of its students. 

Academic Advisement and Program Planning 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be acknowledged, 
first-year students will be encouraged to concentrate on general education 
requirements for the purpose of academic exploration and continuing self- 
discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended interviews and perfor- 
mance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the process of confirming or 
modifying the personal interests and aspirations of each student. 

Special Services 

Students with special academic and developmental needs will receive 
appropriate assistance from CAA, the school's learning resource center. Assis- 
tance will be in the form of individualized course loads, specialized instruction, 
tutoring, and counseling performed by a dedicated staff of professional counsel- 
ors and selected honor students. Referrals for more specialized services will be 
made as warranted. 



Cooperative Programs 

The following types of coop programs are made available at Oakwood 
College: I) Visiting Students, and 2) Off-campus Employment. 

Visiting Student. An arrangement exists with Alabama A & M University, Athens 
State College, John C. Calhoun State Community College, The University of 
Alabama in Huntsville, and Oakwood College. 

Under this arrangement, a student at any of the participating institutions may 
request permission to attend a class at one of the other schools. Conditions 
governing the granting of permission include the following: 

1 . The student must be a full-time student. 

2. The student must have an overall C average. 

3. The course desired must be unavailable at the student's home institu- 
tion. 



47 



4. The student's request must be approved by his advisor and other 
appropriate personnel. 

5. Permission of the institution teaching the course is dependent upon 
availability of space for the visitor after its own students are accommo- 
dated. 

Any student interested in participating in the Visiting Student Program should 
contact the Vice President for Academic Affairs for information and procedures. 

Off Campus Employment. Employment at businesses or professional estab- 
lishments is available upon prior approval. Contact the Office of Career Services 
for information. 



Repeated Courses 

There is no limit on the number of times a course may be repeated. The better 
grade for the repeated course will be accepted for credit. 



Auditing Courses 

Persons who are interested in auditing courses should register during 
regular registration. No credit is given for a course audited and the tuition charged 
is one-half the regular charge for credit. A course started on the auditing basis 
cannot be changed to a credit basis after the first week of the course. 



Correspondence Courses 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with the 
Home Study International, which is the Extension Division of the Associated 
Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of correspondence 
work may apply toward a baccalaureate degree program and twelve quarter 
hours toward an associate degree. All requests for correspondence work must be 
approved by the Records Office and/or the Academic Policies Committee. 

Ordinarily a student will not be permitted to carry correspondence while in 
residence if the required course is obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension 
work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the official transcript for the 
work completed must be in the Records Office by March 20, for spring graduation. 

Correspondence with a D grade or below is unacceptable. No correspon- 
dence credit will be entered upon the student's record until he has earned a 
minimum of 1 6 hours in residence with a cumulative average of at least C. Home 
Study Institute courses do not meet the Alabama State Certification requirements 
for education majors. 



48 



Writing Emphasis Courses 

Two writing emphasis courses of at least three hours each are required of all 
upper division students. Each department will designate and supervise at least 
one required course for their majors which will emphasize essay type tests and/ 
or written reports or a term paper. A (W) after a course title designates a writing 
course. 



Research and independent Study Courses 

Certain departments offer a course entitled "Research and Independent 
Study" for 1 to 4 hours credit to provide qualified students an opportunity to work 
on problems or topics of special interest, to engage in research projects, and to 
do scholarly study as advanced work. Following are fundamental requirements 
for enrolling in such a course: The student must I) be a junior or senior in 
residence with at least a B average or the permission of the instructor and the 
department chair, 2) make application at the time of pre-registration or 
registration by conferring with the chair of the major department, 3) be a major in 
the department in which the course is offered, and 4) receive in writing the 
specific requirements and expectations of the course from the instructor. A 
Research and Independent Study course with a minimum of three hours may 
qualify as a "writing emphasis" course. 



Adventist Colieges Abroad 

Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) is a consortium of Seventh-day Adventist 
Colleges and Universities in North America under the auspices of the Board of 
Higher Education, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Washington, 
D.C. 

The ACA consortium provides opportunities to qualified undergraduate 
students for study in other countries while completing the requirements of their 
programs at their home colleges. This allows students to be immersed in the 
culture and life of another country while becoming conversant in its language. 
Through such experiences students also may gain an appreciation of and 
perhaps an inspiration for mission or other multi-cultural service (see Records 
Office for details). 



Summer School 

Under the umbrella of the Graduate Extension Program with Andrews 
University, the college offers brief intensive courses and workshops. Under- 
graduate courses in the teacher certification program are also offered during the 
summer. 



49 



Transient Letters 

Students desiring to register at another college or university with the intent 
of returning, must obtain a transient letter from the Records Office, which 
recommends the student for temporary admission to the other school without the 
student's having to go through normal admission requirements. Transient letters, 
however, are not granted for attendance at colleges or universities within a fifty- 
mile radius of Huntsville during the fall, winter, or spring quarter, or during the 
winter break. 

Transient credit with grades below C- is unacceptable. Acceptable credit is 
recorded as transfer credit. Students from other schools desiring transient 
admission to Oakwood must provide an official letter of support from the home 
institution. 



Transcripts 

The Records Office releases official transcripts of a student's work at the 
college upon the student's written request. Telephone requests cannot be 
honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript for his use, but official 
transcripts must be sent directly to other colleges, organizations, and other 
approved sources. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning the 
record of any student who has unpaid accounts or other charges or who is in 
delinquent or default status in payment of student loans. 

Two weeks should be allowed for the processing and mailing of the transcript 
after your request has been received. Official transcripts from other institutions 
which have been presented to Oakwood for admission and evaluation of credit 
become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued or copied for release. Each 
student is entitled to one official transcript without charge. A fee of $2.00 is 
charged for each additional official transcript and $1 .00 for an unofficial transcript 
for unenrolled students. 



Class Absences 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory appoint- 
ments. Absences are counted from the first official day of classes. If for any reason 
the total hours of absence are double the number of credit hours of the course per 
quarter, credit may, at the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade of 
FA be recorded. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from 
required class work. The student, however, must make arrangements with the 
teacher for every anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at least 72 
hours before the beginning of such anticipated schedules. All make-up work, 



50 



involving examinations and other class requirements, must be made up within 
seven days after the absence occurs. 

It is the responsibility of students to keep a record of their absences, to keep 
themselves informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examina- 
tions at the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when 
they are due. 



Student Missionary Program 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands to serve as 
missionaries. Their responsibilities range from religious leadership to teaching, 
to industrial/vocational work. For details, contact the Department of Campus 
Ministries, Oakwood College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: 

1 . Applicants must have attained at least sophomore standing (minimal 44 
quarter hours) with a cumulative grade point average of C or above, and 
no grade below C in all English composition and grammar courses. 

2. Applicants must have a B average or above in the subject area that they 
are expected to teach as student missionaries. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student mission- 
ary, the student shall receive 4 hours of elective credit on a pass/fail 
basis in the area of Student Foreign Service. Quality of service is 
determined by a written evaluation from immediate supervisor or 
appropriate official over the student missionary. Students may opt for an 
additional four hours should they secure prior approval from the 
instructional department and the Academic Policies Committee estab- 
lishing that more specialized mission services will be experienced such 
as, but not limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

Four hours credit are considered full-time for these students. 



Academic Honesty 

Oakwood College is dedicated to scholastic integrity. Consequently, stu- 
dents of the college are required to maintain high Christian standards of honesty. 
If students are found or suspected of engaging in any of the following types of 
academic misconduct, the procedures set forth in this policy will be implemented. 

Types of Academic Dishonesty: 

1 . Dishonesty in testing (e.g., copying from another student's paper, using 
unauthorized materials, or collaborating with any other person without 
authority from the instructor during an examination; stealing test mate- 
rials; obtaining test information prior, during, or after an administered 
examination; or any other form of test dishonesty). 



51 



2. Plagiarism-defined as unacknowledged use of another's work (e.g., 
submitting any written, oral, aesthetic, computer, or laboratory work 
prepared totally or in part by another person, such work need not be 
copyrighted). 

3. Any other practice deemed by the college as academic misconduct not 
listed above. 

Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty: 

If a teacher finds irrefutable evidence of academic dishonesty, the teacher 
should immediately speak with the student and issue zero credit for the particular 
examination, assignment, or project. 

If academic misconduct is suspected by a teacher, that teacher must follow 
certain steps. \ 

1 . The teacher must first speak with the student about the question of 
dishonesty. If the student acknowledges engaging in academic miscon- 
duct, the student will be given no credit for the particular examination, 
assignment, or project. 

2. If the situation cannot be resolved between the teacher and student, 
then it must be brought to the attention of the teacher's department chair. 

3. If the department chair is unable to resolve the matter, the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs must then be consulted, and may refer 
the issue to the Academic Appeals Committee. 

4. Subsequent incidents of academic dishonesty make a student eligible 
for dismissal from the college. Students are, however, given the option 
of appealing this decision to the Academic Appeals Committee. 

5. Each established incident of academic misconduct shall be departmen- 
tally documented and submitted to both the student, the student's major 
department chair, the Vice President of Academic Affairs, and the Vice 
President of Student Services. 



Academic Grievance 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional matters 
such as perceived unfairness, grading methodology, cheating, or some other 
misunderstanding within or without the classroom is encouraged to confer first 
with the teacher of the class and, if deemed necessary, with the teacher's 
department chair. If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily at the first two levels, 
the student should contact the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

The Vice President for Academic Affairs will review the matter to a) make a 
final determination of the matter, or b) refer the matter to the Academic Appeals 
Committee for further review and recommendation. In either case, the final 
decision is the responsibility of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

The Academic Appeals Committee receives referrals directly from the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. Cases are referred to this committee if the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs determines more information is needed to make 



52 



an equitable decision. The process is as follows: a) the Vice President for 
Academic Affairs notifies the chair of the Appeals Committee of the student's 
concern, b) the aggrieved student submits a written report of the complaint to the 
chair of the Appeals Committee, and c) a recommendation is made to the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. 

The student or faculty member has the option to appear in person before the 
Appeals Committee, bringing documentation to support their views; however, it 
is not required that they appear in person. It should be understood that the 
purpose of the appeals process is to peaceably resolve issues which have not 
been resolved through other means. Therefore, the approach to problem 
resolution in the appeals process is through consensus, so far as is possible. 

The membership of the Academic Appeals Committee consists of six 
individuals, that include: the USM Academic Vice President (chair), two elected 
student representatives, two full-time teaching faculty, and one full-time staff 
member. The Vice President for Academic Affairs , or designee, may choose to 
sit with the Appeals Committee for purposes of hearing the discussion or for 
clarification of issues, but not for voting purposes. 



Bulletin Selection 

Students may meet degree requirements under the bulletin of initial registra- 
tion or any bulletin in effect during the time of continuous residence at Oakwood. 
Selecting the senior year bulletin should not be done after the fall quarter of the 
graduating year. Students who discontinue enrollment must meet the following 
bulletin requirements: 

1 . If unenrolled for one calendar year or less, students may return under 
any bulletin in effect during their previous continuous residence. 
Transfer credit will be accepted provided that a transient letter 
request has received prior approval from the Records Office. 

2. Students unenrolled for more than one calendar year must meet 
requirements of the current bulletin. 

3. Seniors with 1 2 hours or less remaining at the time of spring gradua- 
tion have a maximum of two calendar years to complete their 
requirements and remain under the bulletin they selected during their 
senior year. 

4. All transfer students must fulfill the requirements of the current 
bulletin. 



Double Major 

Students may enroll for a double major provided they meet all of the require- 
ments for both majors. Pursuing a double major may require more than 1 92 hours 
and take longer than 4 years to complete. 



53 



Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees

examinations: the ETS Biology Test which must be passed within two standard 
deviations of the national norm or the GRE advanced biology test which must 
be passed with a score of at least 850. 



Career Opportunities 

Biology, the study of living things, is a science that has many specialities and 
existing opportunities for rewarding careers. Modern biology is pursuing the 
quest for a full understanding, at the molecular level, of the basic mechanisms 
underlying life processes. Modern biology is also concerned with current social 
issues related to human health, behavior, over-population, and those that impact 
on the earth's natural, life sustaining environment. Many more trained biologists 
will be needed, in addition to health professionals to find an effective answer to 
the AIDS dilemma. 

Graduates from this department may also have careers in agriculture, allied 
health, dentistry , medicine, and teaching. 



B.A. or B.S. in Biology 

A student majoring in biology may choose tofolloweitherthe B.A. program, 
the B.S. program, or B.A. or B.S. program with pre-med concentration. Students 
pursuing the B.A. or B.S. program will choose electives in consultation with their 
major advisors. Once electives have been agreed upon the student may not 
change except with the prior written approval of the advisor. 

Pre-medical students are required to follow either the B.A. or B.S. program. 
In the final quarter of the sophomore year or the first quarter of the junior year,

Purpose 



It is the purpose of the Department of Education to provide access to quality 
teacher education programs at the elementary and secondary levels. The 
programs are designed to prepare teachers for certification in Seventh-day 
Adventist church schools and in public school systems as well as for graduate 
study in education and related fields. 

Oakwood College is an institutional member of the American Association 
for Colleges of Teacher Education. The teacher education programs are ap- 
proved by the Alabama State Department of Education, the General Conference 
of Seventh-day Adventist's Department of Education, and the National Council 
for Accreditation of Teacher Education. 



Elementary Education 

The elementary education curriculum prepares students for elementary 
school teaching and, eventually, for graduate study and employment in admin- 
istration, teaching, supervision, and support services. The curriculum allows 
students to apply for Alabama Class B Certification: grades 1-6; certification in 
other states; and SDA Basic Teaching Certification: grades 1 -9. 



Secondary Education 

The following teaching areas are offered in secondary education: biology, 
business, chemistry, English, home economics, language arts, mathematics, 
religion, and social science. 



96 



These curricula allow students, upon graduation, to apply for the Alabama 
Class B Certificate: grades 7-1 2 (except religion), and the SDA Basic Certificate: 
grades 7-12. 



N-12 Programs 

The following teaching areas are offered in early childhood through the 
secondary teaching level: music education, instrumental (N-12), music educa- 
tion, vocal-choral (N-12), and physical education (N-12). 

These curricula allow students, upon graduation, to apply for Alabama Class 
B Certification: N-12 and SDA Basic Teaching Certification: K-12. 



Master of Arts in Teaching 

The Master of Arts in Teaching is offered during the summer by Andrews 
University on the Oakwood College campus. Faculty from both institutions 
provide the teaching staff. The curriculum is jointly planned to meet the needs of 
Oakwood College graduates as well as other interested practitioners. 

The NCATE-approved degree is conferred by Andrews University and will 
satisfy the advanced study requirements for the SDA Standard and Professional 
Teaching Certificates. 

Students studying for the Master of Arts in Teaching degree in Elementary 
Education may receive all of their instruction at the Oakwood College campus. 
Secondary teachers may receive up to 12 hours of instruction at Oakwood and 
the remainder at Andrews University. Application procedures and policies are the 
same as those at the Berrien Springs campus. 



Application for Admission 

Criteria for admission into teacher education include the following: 

1 . An application for admission to teacher education submitted after comple- 
tion of at least 90 quarter hours, including 72 hours of general studies. 

2. A cumulative GPA of 2.50 for all college work attempted to meet the 
approved program. The overall grade point average must be calculated 
using the following components: 

a) General Studies — All work used to meet the general studies 
requirements in the approved program; 

b) Professional Studies — All work attempted in professional studies 
of the approved program and all transferred work in the professional 
studies used to meet program requirements; and 

c) Teaching Field(s) — All work attempted in the teaching field(s) 
used to meet program requirements. 

d) If additional course work is required to fulfill the GPA requirement 

97 



for admission, only course work in the humanities, social sciences, 
sciences, mathematics, or the teaching field(s) may be used, 
e) No grade below C (2.00) will be accepted in the following courses: 
EN 101, 102, 103, MA 101, PE 211, all religion courses, all 
professional education courses, and all courses in the teaching 
field. 

3. Satisfactory performance on the Alabama Basic Skills Test. 

4. Satisfactory recommendations from advisor(s), and education instructor, 
employment supervisor, residence hall dean, and an interview by the 
education advisor. 



Additional Guidelines 

Teacher Education students who wish to receive credit for study at institu- 
tions outside the United States must obtain an evaluation of the credits from World 
Education Services, Inc., New York, or from a state, federal, or private foreign 
credential evaluation service recognized by the Teacher Certification Office of the 
Alabama Department of Education. 

All correspondence work in general studies must have prior approval. 
Correspondence study is not acceptable for meeting professional teacher edu- 
cation requirements. 

Students desiring a career in secondary education should consult the 
Program Advisor and the Secondary Education Office no later than the first 
quarter of the sophomore year in order to plan an appropriate course of study. 

The exact course requirements may differ from student to student depending 
on the precise time the student enrolls in teacher education. This curriculum is 
based on denominational, state, and institutional policies and is thereby subject 
to change. 

The Teacher Education Council reserves the right to admit persons to 
teacher education who, in the judgment of the council, are most likely to profit from 
the teacher education program of study offered at Oakwood College. 

If necessary, a student may repeat required entrance examinations in an 
effort to meet admission standards. A limited number of specified courses in 
education may be earned prior to admission to the Teacher Education Program. 



Application to Student Teaching Internship 

In the junior year, education students must apply to the Teacher Education 
Council for admission to student teaching for the ensuing senior year. Each 
student must purchase a copy of the Student Teaching Handbook. In addition to 
letters of recommendation, students are required to maintain GPA minimums of 
2.50. Students teaching is offered during fall and winter quarters only. All 
methods courses must be taken before beginning student teaching. Although 
enrollment in other class work along with student teaching is discouraged, 
permission may be granted under the following conditions: 1 ) a minimum GPA 

98 



of 3.00 to take one additional course, 2) the additional course work should in no 
way interfere with the student teaching experience. 



General Education Requirements 

Teacher Education students must meet the following exceptions in general 
education requirements: 

1 . Social Science: earn 20 quarter hours which include: 

a) 4 quarter hours in an economics course 

b) HI 314 Denominational History with a minimum grade of C (2.00). 

2. Religion: all transfer students must earn 1 6 quarter hours with a minimum 

grade of C (2.00). 

Consult your education advisor about some courses in general studies that 
may also be counted in the teaching field for N-12 and secondary education 
programs. 

Requirements for teacher certification are based on denominational, state 
and institutional policies and are thereby subject to change. 

Detailed information on teacher preparaiion and certification is outlined in the 
Teacher Education Handbook which is one of the textbooks in ED1 30 Orientation 
to Teaching. A copy of the Handbook may be secured from the Department of 
Education; or by writing to the Department of Education, Oakwood College, 
Huntsville, Alabama 35896. 



Exit Examination 

Each student must perform satisfactorily on a departmentally prepared exit 
examination with the following components: essay questions taken from the 
professional and specialty areas, multiple choice questions taken from the 
professional and specialty areas, and an exit interview. Please see the Teacher 
Education Handbook for a statement on an external examination for seniors. 



Graduation Requirements 

The following items must be submitted to the education advisor during the fall 
quarter preceding graduation: application for graduation, completed transfer 
credit approval forms (if needed), four-year program checklist, final year sched- 
ule, applications for S.D. A. and Alabama State Certifications, information sheet 
for graduate registry, and confirmation of registration with the placement office. 



99 



Career Opportunities 

There is a widespread perception that the American education system must 
change significantly in order to face the challenges of the future. A major 
component of that change will be the training of more competent teachers. An 
increasingly diverse student population will demand large numbers of minority 
teachers, especially males, and particularly in the areas of mathematics and the 
sciences.

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of English and Communications to 
provide essential service to every student. The English program provides 
strategies whereby students can learn to read with speed and comprehension, 
to speak and write clearly, to listen and recall correctly, and to perceive that 
literature is important because it is a source of vital insights into the problems and 
achievements of men--ancient or modern. Beyond and above these objectives, 
the department deals with languages from a Christian perspective by emphasiz- 
ing such qualities of language as purity, kindness, and honesty. 

The area of communications provides an opportunity for students of oral 
communications and mass communications to learn the theory and practice of 
the art of communications. Students are prepared for careers as reporters and 
editors for both print and broadcast media. 

The objectives of the art program are to provide an environment for 
aesthetic and technical growth, to cultivate an appreciation of the many forms of 
visual experience, to provide opportunities for the joy of self-expression in the 
visual arts, and to prepare artists for employment in a wide variety of professions. 

The program in foreign language facilitates the B.A. degree and provides a 
profitable elective for students alert to society's growing multiculturalism and the 
cosmopolitan nature of our world.
